We are making a pilot for a new satire show for BBC 2 called 'Unspun'. It will be a mix of political guests, jokes and special features.
We're looking for people to join us making the show; creating content, writing material and coming up with ideas for show features. If that sounds like the kind of thing you're into then we'd like to hear from you.
If you are a writer or writer/performer then we'd like you to get involved. There are opportunities for both writers and performers on the show.
If you'd like to be considered then please send us the following two things:
1.A side of A4 topical writing which gives us a flavour of your writing style, personality, interest in politics and popular culture.
This is completely open to your interpretation so long as it's topical, we don't mind what form you use. We are looking for both strong humour and an understanding of how to structure your bits so please do make whatever you do have shape.
2. Two ideas that you think would fit well in this satire based show.
These would be a self-contained section that would occur in every episode across a series. The best versions of these are original and most importantly, simple. In tone these ideas can be as 'straight' or as silly as you like. It's up to you.
We are not interested in previous work, experience, or any of that: These are blind submissions We are looking for the people who best fit this show so it's important we get a feel for your style. Don't try to second-guess what tone this show will be; make things in your voice.
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date of 31st January 2016.
Please write - UNSPUN - OPEN SUBMISSION ENTRY - in the subject line of the email.
For the avoidance of doubt, submission will not alter or effect your ownership of the rights in your own work in any way.
